About this property

  • Maple House was built approximately 25 years ago using locally sourced Michelmersh bricks and in a distinctive characterful style and Keymer clay tiled roof. The house holds a great deal of individual charm and character, whilst providing low maintenance. The interior space is over 2880 sq. ft. with versatile accommodation over three floors, ideally suited to the demands of modern day living. The property has a light and airy feel to the interior. The principal rooms are of excellent proportions, with a lovely dual aspect drawing room and working fireplace. There are three further reception rooms including a dining room, family room and conservatory, as well as a study and breakfast area off the kitchen. There is also a
    separate utility room and cloakroom/WC which completes the ground floor accommodation.

    From a galleried first floor landing, there are four bedrooms, each with built in wardrobes and access to a family bathroom. The principal bedroom has a large en suite and dressing room and the second bedroom also has an en suite. A staircase leads up to a spacious second floor whereby there is large double bedroom and bathroom.

    Maple House has a generous sized plot with established secure boundaries. There is a wide private driveway leading to a double garage.
